July Wrap Up

Once again, it’s been a slow month, but I’ve really enjoyed the books I’ve read, especially the two from The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White. This month also marks my first audio book, which is pretty cool.

Book Post

Absolutely no book post this month, which hasn’t happened in a while but has given me some much needed catch up time! And I’ve still had some awesome books from NetGalley:

Moonrise by Sarah Crossan

(Thanks Bloomsbury Children’s Books!)

In Real Life by Cory Doctorow

The Princess and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang

(Thanks First Second Books!)

Sky by Sarah Driver

(Thanks Egmont!)

Indigo Donut by Patrice Lawrence

(Thanks Hodder Children’s Books!)

There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

(Thanks Macmillan Children’s Books!)

What I Wrote:

Still chipping away at the editing. I’m trying to focus on the story structure and have made a timeline that zigzags across my study, and I think that’s really helping to visualise the story.

What I watched:

TV

Pretty Little Liars finally ended, and after watching the finale I’ve gone right back to the start to see it all again. There’s so much stuff from the earlier seasons that I don’t even remember!

Films

I can’t think of anything significant we’ve watched this month, other than a god awful horror on Amazon calledĀ Slaser.com It’s badly shot and badly acted, with a terrible, nonsensical story. Good for a laugh if you like those ‘so bad it’s good’ horror films though!

What I Did

My best friend and I did a breakout room at ClueHQ in Coventry and were their fastest two person breakout. Yes, I’m bragging, but we thought it was pretty cool! Still going with the driving lessons and starting to get nervous for my test. Hoping that by this time next month I’ll be able to drive!

What Little Moore Did

Little Moore is finally getting more confident with his walking. He’s taking more steps between us now, and will happily potter about a little on his own between toys and furniture. He’s also got a Cozy Coupe – you know, those big red and yellow carsĀ everyone had as kids – and is obsessed with getting in and out of it.
